Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan on Sunday said the government is going to construct a camp on some 2,000 acres of land at Kutupalong of Ukhia upazila in Cox's Bazar to rehabilitate the Rohingyas fleeing persecution in Myanmar.

"There'll be seven blocks in the camp and an officer will be assigned for each block. The Rohingya refugees won't be allowed to go outside the camp," he said.

Mentioning that the government will provide the refugees with refugee cards, the minister said, "The unregistered refugees won't be allowed to get any relief and assistance. And they can't board vehicles inside the Bangladesh territory."
 While talking to reporters after a meeting with top officials of the law and enforcement agencies at the Secretariat on the ongoing Rohingya crisis, he said around 3 lakh Rohingya people have so far crossed the border from Myanmar to Bangladesh since August 25 last.

Asaduzzaman said police and Ansar members will be deployed in the areas surrounding the camp for ensuring overall security.
 Besides, Directors General of the Passports and Immigration Department, Border Guard Bangladesh and National Identity Registration Wing (NID) will monitor the camp, he said.

The minister said International Organization for Migration (IOM) and United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees will provide assistance in the registration work.unb
